DC Mansion Murder Suspect Taken Into Custody

Metropolitan Police Department(WASHINGTON) — Daron Dylon Wint, the man suspected in a quadruple murder at a Washington, D.C. mansion, was taken into custody on Thursday night, police said.

Wint, 34, was arrested at 11 p.m. on Rhode Island Avenue in Northeast Washington, Metropolitan Police said. He is charged with first degree felony murder while armed. Members of the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force made the arrest. He is slated to be arraigned Friday.

Wint was named by Metropolitan Police as the suspect in the murders after his DNA was found on the crust of a Domino's pizza that had been delivered to the house, authorities said.

Savvas Savopoulos and his wife Amy, their 10-year-old son Phillip and longtime housekeeper Veralicia Figueroa were found dead on May 14.

Robert Fernandez, Commander of the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force, says Wint's arrest occurred after officers trailed two vehicles leaving a Maryland hotel. The capture apparently followed a missed opportunity for an arrest.

“We tracked him up to New York City and we barely missed him,” Fernandez said.

“It was a very fluid situation. We were planning on figuring out where he was in the hotel and then taking him down. When we were approaching, we realized he was in a vehicle.”

Investigators believe the home invasion was not random.

"We do believe there is a connection between this suspect in this case through the business," Police Chief Cathy Lanier said.

Savopoulos was the CEO of American Iron Works, which specializes in steel and iron manufacturing. Wint was previously an employee of the company.

Authorities have not ruled out more than one person being involved in the crime.

Following the arrest, the Savopoulos family released a statement, saying, "We are thankful to law enforcement who have worked so diligently to bring about an arrest in this case. While it does not abate our pain, we hope that it begins to restore a sense of calm and security to our neighborhood and to our city. We are blessed to live in a community comprised of close circles of friends who have supported us and grieve with us."

Czech TV Show Takes Family Back in Time to Live Under Nazi Control

Czech TV show takes family back in time to live under Nazi control. (Czech TV)(NEW YORK) — A controversial new Czech TV series is asking a modern family to go back in time to live as they might have had to under Nazi rule, to show the brutality ordinary people had to endure during German occupation.

“Holiday in the Protectorate” asks one three-generation family to live as if it were 1939 to 1945. The family was selected from among 200 candidates after a “rigorous audition,” show officials said.

Their struggles will range from normal tasks, such as harvesting crops and milking cows, to specifically wartime demands — sewing blackout curtains, fortifying a basement air-raid shelter, and dealing with food rationing and frequent hunger. The family will also live through "simulated air-raids, intimidation by Nazi informants and interrogations by the Gestapo," shows officials said.

Eight one hour-long episodes of "Holiday in the Protectorate" will air from May 23 to June 13.

While the horrors the family will face are only re-enactments of what confronted Czech citizens during World War II, their reward will be real: 1 million Czech Krunas, worth a bit more than $40,000, if they survive the two-month ordeal.

The show, produced by Czech Television, will surround the 20th century household with a realistic setting of old-fashioned furniture and period-accurate costumes, matched to those of the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia — an ethnic Czech puppet state set up by Nazi Germany after it occupied and absorbed Czechoslovakia in March of 1939. Professional actors play German soldiers and Gestapo informers. There will be no running water, no refrigerator and even the rare old currency of the Nazi mini-state will be used.

The show was shot under the supervision of a “war cabinet” composed of two historians, two psychologists and an architect who saw that everything about the show seems authentic to historical reality.

“I was inspired by the horrific wartime stories of my maternal grandparents, who lived in a small town in the highlands of Bohemia. I wanted people to see what hardships ordinary people had to go through to survive Nazi occupation,” Zora Cejnkova, the show's director, told ABC News from Prague. “It was interesting to see how people make decisions under such psychological pressure, in front of TV cameras.”

But Czech Television, the show’s producer, has drawn criticism, for trivializing the real tragedies of WWII. Critics wonder what audiences would be entertained by watching people being intimidated by Nazi soldiers and their informers.

“What are they going to do next? Big Brother Auschwitz?” wrote one critic.

“I tried to show that period with seriousness and with utter respect for its tragic character," Cejnkova told ABC News.

"Of course we cannot completely recreate the real danger, but the aim is to show life as it was, and," she said, "if people re-live those times, perhaps future conflicts can be prevented."

“The point about the World War II period is that there was always a possibility of violent death for everyone, something that is impossible to replicate artificially," said Jan Kral, a car designer. "Holiday in the Protectorate recreated some inconveniences of the Nazi occupation, but the real fear was death. The show replicates wartime living the way a Formula One computer game replicates being Michael Shumacher — you get everything except the risk."

And that, Kral said, "is essential."

White House Sticks by Its Strategy Against ISIS

ABC News(WASHINGTON) -- The White House says the president’s strategy against ISIS is working, despite the fact that ISIS is in control of much of Syria and has gained control of the capital city of Iraq’s largest province.

"We are in the degrade portion of this operation,” White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest told reporters in Thursday’s press briefing, pushing back against those who are calling for an overhaul of the current strategy and drawing a hard line against the consideration of a large-scale military deployment.

“The president is not going to be in a position where he's going to consider a large-scale U.S. military deployment,” Earnest added. “And for those who are calling on a change in strategy, I would encourage them to be specific.”

Instead of overhauling current strategy, Earnest told ABC News' Chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl that that President Obama and his national security team are looking for ways to apply strategies that have worked in other places -- using Kobani and Tikrit as examples of success -- to areas where the United States is experiencing setbacks.

“What's under consideration is how can we learn from those situations where we have had success and made progress and how can we apply those lessons to this area where we have experienced a setback,” Earnest told Karl.

Though Earnest said the White House is “deeply concerned” about the situation in Palmyra, the administration is not changing its current strategy in Syria.

“Until we're able to build up local forces on the ground in Syria who can take the fight to ISIL in their own country, you know, this is going to continue to be a difficult challenge, and one that is not going to be solved overnight, but rather, one that will require a long-term commitment,” he said.

Paralyzed Man Drinks Beer by Moving Robotic Arm with His Mind

Caltech/Keck Medicine of USC/Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center(DOWNEY, Calif.) — Erik Sorto hasn't been able to move his arms or legs in more than a decade, but he was recently able to pick up a beer and drink it with a new robotic arm.

Sorto, 34, was paralyzed from the neck down by a gunshot injury when he was 21. Now, thanks to a joint project by Caltech, Keck Medicine of USC and Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center, he has become the first patient to have a device surgically implanted into the region of his brain that plans movements, allowing him to move a robotic arm.

"He comes in and he’s plugged in like The Matrix," Dr. Mindy Aisen, chief medical officer and principal investigator of the Spinal Cord Injury Model System at Rancho, told ABC News, adding that Sorto has exceeded every expectation. "He's painted pictures, made the smoothies. It's been a wonderful experience. It's a very good thing for our patients who are paralyzed to see such tech wizardry."

For months, Aisen said with Sorto and told him to imagine moving his hand.

"He just -- nothing happened," she said.

So, they turned up the audio so he could hear the sound of his neurons and know that they were working.

"I was there the day it all clicked. He was looking at the robot arm and he was perspiring," she said. "He started to laugh, to relax. He said, 'Thumbs up, thumbs down. Thumbs up, thumbs down.'"

And he did it. From there, he gradually learned to perform tasks, from making a smoothie to drinking a beer.

"The project is much bigger than the science fiction excitement of Eric," Aisen said, explaining that it offers hope for patients who are "locked in" due to ALS severe strokes and other injuries.

Google Brings Shopping Experience to YouTube

Photo by Ethan Miller/Getty Images(SAN FRANCISCO) -- YouTube wants to change the way people buy items and is harnessing the power of its videos to help connect consumers and retailers.

Sridhar Ramaswamy, Google's senior vice president of advertisements and commerce, announced what could be a revenue-boosting plan for the video sharing website Thursday during his keynote at Ad:Tech in San Francisco.

Google is adding products to its TrueView advertisements -- the spots that users can skip after watching for a certain amount of time. The hope here is that instead of looking away while the ad rolls, users will click on a product and be taken to the retailer's website to complete their transaction.

"In a world where people want things right away, this is the ultimate expression of a full-purchase journey within an ad," Ramaswamy said. "For the first time, viewers will be able to not only learn about products through video -- they’ll be able to shop for them as well -- seeing product listings within the video itself."

Ramaswamy said Wayfair, a furniture retailer, used the system for shopping advertisements. When compared to other video campaigns, he said they saw their revenue triple per view, along with a 20 percent increase in their view through rate, the number of people who stick with the ad until it ends.

YouTube also announced Thursday an early preview of 60 frame per second live streaming video. While the new frame rate is still in early preview, it could help YouTube make a play for gamers who broadcast their adventures on Amazon-owned competitor Twitch.
